Bounded by South La Cholla Boulevard, West Tucson Ajo Highway, and West Starr Pass Boulevard, the Westside Development is a neighborhood conveniently located near many Tucson amenities. While retail stores, schools, and parks are all close by, the Westside development is over all not a very walkable neighborhood.
